Warm cream kitchen in the ‘Coldharbour’ style, featuring a walk-in larder fridge and octagonal pedestal island.

This warm cream-coloured kitchen features door and draw-fronts designed specifically to a style the client had in mind, including the hand-painted finish. Named the ‘Coldharbour’ style kitchen it was built in a beautiful period property with high ceilings and a tiled floor. The interesting ceiling features and height allowed us to use different height wall units for added interest and whilst we used a warm wooden worktop in some areas we used an antiqued black stone worktop with integrated double sink and drainer where constant contact with water was likely to cause damage.

What the client said:

“Dowers and Guy Cheeseman built a bespoke kitchen for us nearly eight years ago. We were delighted with the result. More so, throughout the design and consultation period Guy gently guided us to something that is not only useable and practical but hard wearing and certainly suggests that it will be here long after we have need for it. 

The building work was carried out with meticulous planning and flexibility which helped overcome the many hurdles we encountered with electrics, plumbing, flooring etc,

We have since had a number if smaller projects carried out by Dowers and Guy is currently redesigning a bedroom for us. We did use some of the more national firms before we found Dowers but are now reluctant to settle for anything else. In the long term, the quality of what we get, the aesthetics and the uniqueness is worth it; in addition we get the personal service and attention which is invaluable”.
